The acne could be due to hormonal changes in the body

You can start by using a benzoyl peroxide facewash. Depending on the stage of acne whether more of comedones or white heads or black heads or pus filled acne a medical line of treatment can be started.

  • For OTC creams, use those which contain following ingredients:
    • Hydroquinone.
    • Licorice extract.
    • N-acetylglucosamine.
    • Vitamin B-3 (niacinamide)

    • Laser treatment: Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 22,000
    • Microdermabrasion: Rs. 1500 to Rs. 6000
    • Chemical peels: Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 10,000 per session.

These can be performed on people of all skin types, but if you have any other skin condition such as pigmentation/etc, then there could be complications.
The actual cost can exceed the estimated range, because of factors such as location/experience of the clinician, severity of concern, number of sessions, area covered, and value-added services provided by the clinic.
 

  • For every procedure or treatment option mentioned above, discuss following things with your doctor:
    • Risks, correction course, and compensation.
    • Pre-operative measures and post-operative care.
    • Candidate eligibility criteria.
    • Impact of past/current medical issues on your overall experience and recovery.

  • For pigmented skin & dark circles these are the options:
    • OTC creams - apply creams with these ingredients on your spots (Rs. 200 to Rs. 2000):
      • Hydroquinone
      • Licorice extract
      • N-acetylglucosamine
      • Vitamin B-3 (niacinamide)
    • Chemical Peels (Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 10,000 per session): A solution containing certain acids which are beneficial for your skin, is applied to your skin and peeled off later on. These peels use acids of stronger, mild and moderate strength concentrations to treat the desired area of skin.
    • Laser therapy (Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 22,000 per session): Heat from intense light beam vaporizes damaged cells underneath your eyes.
      There are two types:
      • Ablative lasers: are intense and they remove layers of your skin, but they also make you prone to side effects.
      • Non-ablative lasers: target the dermis to boost collagen growth and tightening effects.
         
  • Additionally for pigmentation you also have these treatments:
    • Microdermabrasion (Rs. 1500 to Rs. 6000 per session): Treats the epidermis only (superficial scarring). During the treatment, your dermatologist will use a drill-like handheld appliance with a wire brush or some other abrasive as its attachment, to swipe over your skin. Same will eliminate epidermal scarring.
    • Dermabrasion (Rs. 1500 to Rs. 6000 per session): Involves the removal of your epidermis, but it also manages to reach to a part of your dermis. While dermabrasion smoothens out wrinkles, the procedure has been historically used to address texture-related concerns.
       
  • Additionally for dark circles you also have these treatments:
    • There is also a surgical technique to remove fat from your lids if the cast of their shadow is the culprit behind your dark circles, which is known as blepharoplasty (Rs 80,000 - Rs. 2,00,000 overall),
    • And otherwise, you can also inject certain acids into the tissues under your eyes, as recommended by trained specialists, so as to overcome volume loss under your eyes which could have contributed to dark circles as well, they are referred to as fillers (Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 60,000).
       
  • Skin tightening:
    • We implore you to read our blog, as it covers different clinical procedures and numerous options which use fillers/lasers to lift up skin and make it firm - Top Anti-Aging Treatment for skin.
       
  • Note: The actual cost can exceed the estimated range, it depends upon location/experience of clinician, infrastructure/other value-added services provided by a clinic, and severity of concern along with area covered.

Cost of Hair Transplant in India lies somewhere around Rs. 25-45 per graft. With each graft containing 1 to 3 hair follicles.

So for 2,500 graphs the broad range of price should be ₹ 62,500 - ₹ 87,500.


But these estimates are subject to change as following factors could impact the rates as well:

  • the experience of clinician & technology used by them,
  • infrastructure & location of clinic,
  • as well as value-added services provided by them.

You can learn more from our blog about process/types/cost breakdown/parameters - Cost of Hair Transplant in India.

  1. Laser hair removal treatment can slow down hair growth, but they don't provide permanent hair removal.
  2. Electrolysis, the only method recognized by FDA, can permanently remove hair and stop any regrowth, it can cost you anywhere between Rs 800 to Rs 5,000 per hour.
    • Cost of both treatments can vary, depending on doctor's choice of equipment, location, number of sessions, density of hair, body parts covered and their sizes, as well as infrastructure/other value-added services provided by the clinic.
  3. Temporary but commonly occurring side effects are pain, redness and swellings.
  4. But if not done properly, then can also lead to scarring, keloid scars and changes in skin color as well. 

 

For more information, refer our page - Laser Hair Removal doctors, and connect with experts, you can also reach out to us if you have any doubts, or if you have any preference regarding the city where you want to undergo this treatment. Take care!
